Is the new bumblebee the z28?

I mean I dont know if this is old Im sorry but with them introducing several new and concept models in the movie its likely thats how they would build the hype up but I found this .....Bumblebee" version of the 2010 Chevy Camaro Z28. That's right, our e-mail tipster, who also posted the shots on the forum, claims not only that this is a 2010 (or 2012) Corvette concept, but also that this isn't the "SS" Camaro, it's the Z28. Whether this mean we'd not only get a "Super Sport" package, but also a "special performance package" via a Z28 check box remains to be seen. UPDATE: We've also been told it may just be a package we can order from the folks at Saleen. But, we digress — if we're to believe the poster, both vehicles are getting some sort of paint treatment as part of work they're undergoing at the hands of Chip Foose. How the producers of the new Transformers 2 movie got Foose to step away from his work on "Foosical: The Musical" we'll never know. Hit the jump for the Camaro shots and some of our own speculation.

I hope not, I personally think the new Bumblebee isn't tastefully done.

I would love that car, only thing that doesn't excite me to much is the front bumper with the two openings on either side, but it still isnt that bad.

It is the same car (GTO underneath) as the first movie, with some added GMPP.

At the risk of incurring a lot of flames thrown my way.....

To me it comes across as a JC Whitney custom job.

Notice the comment about Bumblebee going bad in the movie? That kit does look awfully evil...
